Your Children.Their Education.Our Collective Future.
Jordan Education Foundation (JEF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to support your children, their education and our collective future. JEF connects passions with possibilities and creates lasting legacies. The foundation's mission is to generate and guide philanthropic resources to promote excellence in education in Jordan School District.
Foundation board members and friends encourage private support from individuals, businesses, corporations, foundations and events. The Foundation welcomes planned giving and deferred donations through Charitable Trusts. Jordan Education Foundation is unique because:
In the mid 1980's, changes in Utah law provided a process whereby public school districts could accept donations that resulted in a tax deduction for the donor. Jordan Education Foundation was created in 1986 by the Jordan School District Board of Education and incorporated in 1988. JEF is designated by the IRS as tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the code and classified as a public charity under section 509(a)(1) & 170(b)(1)(A)(vi) of the code. JEF supports over 51,000 students who attend 53 schools in the rapidly growing cities of West Jordan, South Jordan, Riverton, Bluffdale, Herriman and Copperton.
